Help, explain this: Trump lawyers hire outside team to search four properties for classified info

What happens if they find something classified?
Did Trump authorize this?
Can any of this be trusted?

CNN https://www.cnn.com/2022/12/07/politics/trump-lawyers-properties-search/index.html
Lawyers for former President Donald Trump recently hired a team to search four of his properties for any potentially remaining classified materials, according to a source familiar the matter.

The team of two searched Trump Tower in New York, the Bedminster golf club and two other properties amid lingering concerns from the Justice Department that not all documents had been returned to the federal government.

The four searches, which were carried out in recent weeks, were overseen by Trumpís legal team, the source said. Trumpís attorneys offered to let federal investigators observe the search at his Bedminster properties, but that offer was declined. Given the Justice Departmentís response, Trump lawyers did not make a similar offer for the search of the other properties.

It would be highly unusual for the Justice Department to observe searches that arenít conducted by law enforcement. The department declined to comment.
